Secure Knowledge Solution ID sk107334 says:

 

"IPS Bypass Under Load mechanism looks at the indiviual core utilization rather than the average core utilization. As a result, spikes in individual core usage may pass the treshold and subsequently trigger the IPS Bypass Under Load mechanism, even if overall CPU utilization is still under the threshold for activation."

 

How does this relate to VSX virtual systems? For example, could a CPU under load that has it's affinity set to a NIC that is only used in VS X, trigger an IPS Bypass for VS Y and VS Z that are on the same VSX host?
